"NRP continues to operate under government guidelines and employ remote work protocols. Our people are safe and the company is conducting business as usual," said Craig Nunez, NRP's President and Chief Operating Officer. "While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a significant negative impact on demand for steel, electricity and glass, which translates to lower demand for coal and soda ash, we continue to believe that our ample liquidity, continued free cash flow generation and the fact that our parent company bonds do not mature until 2025 will provide us with the financial flexibility and margin of safety necessary to manage through the downturn.”

NRP's liquidity was $210.8 million at June 30, 2020, consisting of $110.8 million of cash and $100.0 million of borrowing capacity available under its revolving credit facility.

NRP announced today that the Board of Directors of its general partner declared a second quarter 2020 cash distribution of $0.45 per common unit of NRP to be paid on August 26, 2020 to unitholders of record on August 19, 2020. The Board also declared a second quarter 2020 cash distribution on NRP’s 12.0% Class A Convertible Preferred Units, totaling $7.5 million. Future distributions on NRP's common and preferred units will be determined on a quarterly basis by the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors considers numerous factors each quarter in determining cash distributions, including profitability, cash flow, debt service obligations, market conditions and outlook, and the level of cash reserves that the Board determines is necessary for future operating and capital needs.

Segment Performance

Coal Royalty and Other

Revenues and other income in the second quarter of 2020 were lower by $36.1 million and distributable cash flow and free cash flow were $23.2 million and $24.5 million lower, respectively, as compared to the prior year quarter. This decrease is primarily a result of a weakened market for metallurgical coal as compared to the prior year quarter due to a decline in global steel demand. As a result, both sales volumes and prices for metallurgical coal sold were lower in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the prior year quarter. Approximately 80% of coal royalty revenues and approximately 70% of coal royalty sales volumes were derived from metallurgical coal during the three months ended June 30, 2020. In addition, weaker domestic and export thermal coal markets compared to the prior year period resulted in lower revenue from our thermal coal properties. Domestic and export thermal coal markets remained challenged by lower utility demand, continued low natural gas prices and the secular shift to renewable energy. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has compounded already weak coal pricing and demand, and NRP's coal lessees are seeing significant negative impacts on their businesses.

NRP worked with its largest lessee, Foresight Energy, to help them to develop a plan that enabled Foresight to emerge from bankruptcy in the second quarter of 2020. NRP entered into lease amendments pursuant to which Foresight agreed to pay NRP fixed cash payments of $48.75 million in 2020 and $42.0 million in 2021 to satisfy all obligations arising out of the existing various coal mining leases and transportation infrastructure fee agreements between NRP and Foresight Energy for calendar years 2020 and 2021. Through the first six months of 2020, NRP received $21.2 million of the $48.75 million due in 2020. Beginning in January 2022, Foresight payment obligations will be calculated in accordance with the provisions of the original lease agreements, except with respect to the Macoupin mine. While the Macoupin mine is idled, Foresight will pay an annual fee of $2.0 million to NRP each year through 2023 to continue to lease NRP's coal reserves at Macoupin.

NRP also recorded $132.3 million in non-cash asset impairment expense in the second quarter of 2020 primarily related to weakened coal markets that was compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic and resulted in the termination of certain coal leases, changes to lessee mine plans resulting in permanent moves off of certain coal properties and decreased oil and gas drilling activity which negatively impacted the outlook for NRP's frac sand properties.

Soda Ash

Ciner Wyoming was negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic as lower activity in the global auto, container and construction industries reduced demand for glass and soda ash. Revenues and other income in the second quarter of 2020 were lower by $14.4 million compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to a combination of lower pricing and volumes sold. Distributions received from Ciner Wyoming were $7.1 million in the second quarter of 2020 as compared to $9.3 million in the second quarter of 2019.

Global soda ash prices are down roughly 25% from a year ago, to levels that NRP believes are below the cost of production of the world’s synthetic soda ash producers and some of the natural soda ash producers. NRP expects the soda ash industry to face significant headwinds until the global economy gets back on track. While NRP believes Ciner Wyoming's facility is competitively positioned as one of the lowest cost producers of soda ash in the world, NRP expects soda ash markets to continue to be challenged over the next several quarters.

Ciner Wyoming continues to develop plans for a significant capacity expansion capital project. However, they have delayed the timing of significant costs related to this project until they have more clarity and visibility into the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its business. In addition, in order to achieve greater financial flexibility during the COVID-19 pandemic, Ciner Wyoming suspended its quarterly distribution for the second quarter which would have been paid to NRP in August 2020. Ciner Wyoming will continue to evaluate on a quarterly basis whether to reinstate the distribution, which will be dependent in part on its cash reserves, liquidity, total debt levels and anticipated capital expenditures.

Corporate and Financing

Corporate and financing costs were $32.0 million lower in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to the loss on extinguishment of debt of $29.3 million related to the refinancing and extension of both NRP's 2022 Senior Notes and revolving credit facility in the second quarter of 2019, as well as lower interest expense as a result of less debt outstanding. Distributable cash flow and free cash flow were $7.3 million lower compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to the timing of interest payments on the parent company bonds that were refinanced in the second quarter of 2019. Interest payments are due in June and December on the new 9.125% Notes, compared to March and September on the previous 10.5% Notes. Additionally, NRP redeemed the $3.75 million of paid-in-kind preferred units in the second quarter of 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

"Adjusted EBITDA" is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as net income (loss) from continuing operations less equity earnings from unconsolidated investment, net income attributable to non-controlling interest and gain on reserve swap; plus total distributions from unconsolidated investment, interest expense, net, debt modification expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, depreciation, depletion and amortization and asset impairments. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income or loss, net income or loss attributable to partners, operating income or loss, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP as measures of operating performance, liquidity or ability to service debt obligations. There are significant limitations to using Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance, including the inability to analyze the effect of certain recurring items that materially affect our net income (loss), the lack of comparability of results of operations of different companies and the different methods of calculating Adjusted EBITDA reported by different companies. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA presented below is not calculated or presented on the same basis as Consolidated EBITDA as defined in our partnership agreement or Consolidated EBITDDA as defined in Opco's debt agreements. Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental performance measure used by our management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others to assess the financial performance of our assets without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis.

“Distributable cash flow” or "DCF" is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities of continuing operations plus distributions from unconsolidated investment in excess of cumulative earnings, proceeds from asset sales and disposals, including sales of discontinued operations, and return of long-term contract receivable; less maintenance capital expenditures and distributions to non-controlling interest. DCF is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities. DCF may not be calculated the same for us as for other companies. In addition, distributable cash flow is not calculated or presented on the same basis as distributable cash flow as defined in our partnership agreement, which is used as a metric to determine whether we are able to increase quarterly distributions to our common unitholders. Distributable cash flow is a supplemental liquidity measure used by our management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others to assess our ability to make cash distributions and repay debt.

“Free cash flow” or "FCF" is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities of continuing operations plus distributions from unconsolidated investment in excess of cumulative earnings and return of long-term contract receivable; less maintenance and expansion capital expenditures, cash flow used in acquisition costs classified as investing or financing activities and distributions to non-controlling interest. FCF is calculated before mandatory debt repayments. Free cash flow is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities. Free cash flow may not be calculated the same for us as for other companies. Free cash flow is a supplemental liquidity measure used by our management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others to assess our ability to make cash distributions and repay debt.

"Cash flow cushion" is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as free cash flow less one-time beneficial items, mandatory Opco debt repayments, preferred unit distributions and common unit distributions. Cash flow cushion is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities. Cash flow cushion is a supplemental liquidity measure used by our management to assess the Partnership's ability to make or raise cash distributions to our common and preferred unitholders and our general partner and repay debt or redeem preferred units.

"Return on capital employed" or "ROCE" is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as net income (loss) from continuing operations plus financing costs (interest expense plus loss on extinguishment of debt) divided by the sum of equity excluding equity of discontinued operations, and debt. Return on capital employed should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income or loss, net income or loss attributable to partners, operating income or loss, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP as measures of operating performance, liquidity or ability to service debt obligations. Return on capital employed is a supplemental performance measure used by our management team that measures our profitability and efficiency with which our capital is employed. The measure provides an indication of operating performance before the impact of leverage in the capital structure.

Leverage Ratio is calculated as the outstanding principal of NRP's debt as of June 30, 2020 divided by the last twelve months' Adjusted EBITDA. Note that adjusted EBITDA under NRP's partnership agreement is different than amount shown above. As a result, NRP's last twelve months Leverage ratio as of June 30, 2020, was 3.6x as calculated under NRP's partnership agreement.
